Density Worksheet Density is a measurement of mass per unit volume (in layman’s terms, how much stuff an object has in a given volume). In other words, a golf ball has greater density than a ping-pong ball even though they are roughly the same shape and size (volume), because there is more stuff inside. This is evident by the considerably greater mass of the golf ball. The standard unit for density is grams per milliliter or grams per cubic centimeter: g/mL or g/cm3 Part one: Calculate the densities of the following substances, and write it in the third column. Mass 12.42 g 12.19 g 11.766 g 7.76 g 0.783 g 3.02 g 13.95 g 40.137 g 79.21 g 52.45 g 36.49 g 4.93 g 135.24 g 67.75 g 43.36 g 37.4 g 6.435 g 7.74 g 2.699 g 34.38 g Volume Density Substance 6 mL 23 mL 5.3 mL 8 mL 0.45 mL 2 mL 9 mL 5.1 mL 8.9 mL 5 mL 5 cm3 1 cm3 7 cm3 5 cm3 4 cm3 2 cm3 0.3 cm3 9 cm3 1 cm3 6 cm3 Part two: You have just figured out the densities of the substances. Now compare these densities with those of known substances, and fill in the fourth column with the calculated substance’s identity.
